Simple joys of the season...

Hello again!

On Monday I shared my card using the fabulous Uptown Zodiac Girl Leo in all her star sign glory, now it is time to see how a few small tweaks can really open up the versatility of these stamps. Just like last month I have ended up with a very different version of the stamp but it didn't require too much altering at all. All I had to do was wipe away her lion ears before stamping and fill in the little bits of missing hair with a black pen. Now she is simply a chic lady draped in her amazing (faux) fur coat. With that kind of outer wear how could I not do a Christmas card? So I masked Leo off and stamped the Winter backdrop behind her twice, creating a peaceful winter scene in the distance that was really quick and easy both to create and to color. I kept most of the color in the background light and cool so that her red tights and golden hair would really stand out. I love how this turned out and I can't believe that I've actually gotten a Christmas card done in August, LOL! ;)

Thanks for stopping by!
